BA (Hons) Popular Music and Recording – Salford University
Further and Adults Education Teaching Certificate

Hello there

I’ve performed with Prince, Amy Winehouse, Beverley Knight, Steve Cropper and many others. I’m in the official Rehab video, and Legend alongside Duffy. Please fell free to look me up on youtube, bandcamp, patreon, any social media or my website www.aaronliddard.com

My approach is student orientated. Its a mixture of formal and informal, working on strength and weaknesses. We will improve your abilities through varied approaches. Generally I’m searching for what works best for you.

I studied teaching gaining a FAETC which is a compressed PGCE.
I’m teaching on Zoom and during normal times I teach from my music studio.
I also teach at Hillyfield Academy in Walthamstow.
I can put you in for grades but only when I feel you’re ready.

Please read my testimonials:

Fatima Date: April 2020
My son has been playing the piano since he was 2 but it was since the last few years has his musical abilities truly unfolded – all thanks to being tutored by Mr. Liddard, who is one of the most accomplished piano teachers that I have met. His teaching style deploys multiple approaches making it fun and productive at the same time. Within a year or so of tutoring, my son has managed to pass his first few Grade exams achieving a Merit and a Distinction – all thanks to the tailored piano tutoring, support and encouragement of Mr. Liddard. My son now has a much greater understanding and appreciation of the instrument. Mr. Liddard has also invested in understanding and getting to know my son and subsequently, the one-to-one tutoring has been immensely beneficial and productive. And even now that we are in lockdown, my son still receives his piano lessons via an online platform where Mr. Liddard has been able to adapt his approach to suit the current climate. We are so happy and proud of our son’s achievement – but the path to being a great pianist is synonymous to having that great piano teacher who will lead the way. I absolutely recommend Mr. Liddard.

Lee Date: April 2020
Aaron has been teaching my son for two years now, and we couldn’t be happier with the progress he has made during this time, and the support that Aaron has given him with his music generally. Aside from being a genuinely nice bloke with a great manner with his pupils, Aaron has a wealth of experience both as a teacher and as an extremely successful jazz musician. My son comes out of every lesson genuinely gushing about what he’s learnt and excited to get on and put it into practise. It’s great to see him so inspired by his lessons. His playing has drastically improved during this time, as has his confidence, and he has developed a genuine love for everything jazz, including scales and theory, which I did not think possible. Every lesson is structured around the individual pupil’s needs, with focus on specific strengths and weaknesses rather than following a generic inflexible programme. My son thinks he wants to pursue a career in music, and the advice Aaron has been able to give him in this regard has been invaluable. Of the many music teachers my kids have had for the instruments they play, Aaron stands miles apart in offering a superior level of teaching.

Simon Date: April 2020
I came to the sax very late, but was always an instrument I wanted to play. I tried a couple of local teachers that were ok, but approached lessons in a very formulaic way. Progress was painfully slow and dull. There had to be another way, so I sought out a performer, a master, in the hope of persuading them to teach. I found Aaron, with his wealth of experience, my first lesson was inspirational, he somehow manages to lift the vail on the world of music and within a year I was playing with bands and performing myself. The amount learned from one lesson with Aaron is worth many lessons with a local music teacher with each lesson building and improving your skills and adding to your confidence to play. I now play with many bands and have performed hundreds of gigs! He really is the Yoda of the jazz stick!

Bachelor’s Degree

I am exceptionally passionate about teaching as evidenced by my 10 years of teaching experience working in secondary, primary and music school settings. By being part of music services, I have gained a lot of knowledge and experience in the way the lessons are delivered and in addition what is expected in the classroom setting. Therefore, I feel that I am a strong candidate for this program.

My career began at a very early age in music school. I went from conservatoire and then later attended university of arts in Lithuania.  I was always passionate about music in my childhood and was fortunate enough to have very supportive parents, who were themselves musicians and taught me to play various instruments. Even though I am trained as a professional saxophone player, I also learnt to play piano, clarinet and flute to a very high standard. This was partly because I enjoyed the sound of these instruments and partly because I was always motivated to learn something new. I strongly believe that my broad education, natural interest in my subject and versatile approach in teaching methods are essential to a successful music teaching career.

I discovered my interest in teaching straight after I graduated from university. I was appointed to work in one of Lithuanian music schools and soon realised that teaching was what I meant to be doing and found it very rewarding. It gives me pleasure seeing pupils progressing in their chosen subject and the positive influence I could make for their future development. As a result, I started to volunteer as a teaching assistant in a UK primary school. This experience was an eye opener into Britain’s education system and strengthened my knowledge in the curriculum. Later I was appointed to work in one of the music services as a peripatetic music tutor of woodwind and piano/keyboard. I had an opportunity to work with pupils from different backgrounds in secondary and primary school settings. Including one to ones, small groups and whole class settings.
Last year I joined a teaching musician course in Trinity Laban conservatoire, which was a great opportunity to enhance my current education and strengthen my teaching skills. I strongly believed that a good music teacher should be actively participate in musical activities. Therefore, I decided to become a member of a wind orchestra, join a few bands, sing in a choir, write my own pieces of music and make arrangements for the orchestra and choir.

I really enjoy working with young people as it has broadened my experience and taught me class management skills into what makes a successful lesson. I believe that engaging with every individual, facilitating people with SEN, organising various activities, presenting material in a methodical and interesting way are what makes a good lesson. It also encourages individuals to thrive in their education. I believe that engagement is important because it is a key tool to ensure learning occurs and it reduces poor student behaviours by keeping them interested in their learning.

I am a young and friendly professional musician currently available to teach saxophone and/or improvisation to students of all ages and standards, and have a wealth of experience as an educator, including :

-Woodwind Tutor at Abercorn School (since 2017)
-Course Tutor for Mehr Clef Summer School (2018,2019, 2020)
-Peripatetic “Jazz Specialist” at Brentwood School (2016-18)
-Ronnie Scott’s “Big Band In A Day” workshop leader (2017)
-Tutor for “Jazz Rehearsals London” (since 2015)

I believe the best route to progress is to enjoy playing and practicing our instruments, and with that in mind I always aim to tailor lessons to the individual needs and wants of each student. I am comfortable working towards grade exams or music medals, but am also happy to structure lessons more freely towards your personal goals.

As a jazz musician, I am able to incorporate harmony/improvisation/composition into lessons if desired, alongside work on reading, fundamentals of the instrument etc. I am also ideally placed to assist advanced students in their preparation for music college auditions – having myself studied at the Royal Academy of Music, and subsequently sat in the band for the audition process.

Some of my past students have gone on to study at Birmingham Conservatoire, Berklee College (US), and the NYJC summer school.

I am a proficient jazz pianist and am able to accompany students in a jazz setting.

I am a clarinet, saxophone, recorder and bassoon teacher based in Haringey. I have done a music degree as well as a composition degree, and am well-placed to therefore teach composition, theory and arranging too. I always want to encourage students to enjoy themselves and to make the most of their lesson time, and I love working with students to help them achieve their musical ambitions.

As I have a large amount of ensemble experience I am able to help students with both solo and ensemble repertoire – I work with ensembles at Haringey Music Service so have experience working with children as well as adults.

Music at college A* Gcse A* various grading on Flute Clarinet and Saxophone

I am currently a 3rd year studying student at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. I discipline in Jazz Saxophone however over the years I have also learnt Drumming, Percussion, Piano, Clarinet and Flute. I have also studied composition with the likes of Barak Schmool and Trish Clowes.

I have around 3-4 years of teaching experience with students aged 6-72. Previously I taught in the Allegro Music academy handling around 30 students per week. When I came to Guildhall I took a 2 year break from teaching in order to focus on my own musical development and to learn disciplines such as composition and second woodwind instruments in more depth. Since then I have started to get back into teaching with a much more developed and engaging teaching style.

I am able to teach all of the above instruments in both classical and jazz disciplines as well as contemporary and popular.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What should I expect to pay for Music Tuition?

    There are many factors that affect the price of one-to-one music lessons, such as qualifications, experience, and whether the teacher travels to you or teachers from home. 

    The Musicians’ Union recommends an hourly rate of £35 for music teaching, however, in our experience, this is normally higher in London and you can expect to pay anything from £40-60 per hour.

    Most importantly, you should find the right teacher for you (or your child).

  • Are your teachers CRB checked?

    We don’t verify that teachers on our database are CRB checked, but most music teachers who have worked in the UK school system, will be required to maintain a regular CRB, and will always list it on their profile.

  • What's the typical length of a lesson?

    Lesson length is a common question we get asked.

    The first thing we suggest taking into consideration is the age of the student, we find that younger beginners, can benefit from regular lessons of 30 – 45 Minutes each, as their attention span is less than the typical adult.

  • I'm a Teacher, how can I be listed on your site?

    To be listed as a teacher on our site, please fill out the form on our sign-up page, with all the relevant information completed. A few things we require, up to date pricing, locations, styles.

  • Do you have Teachers outside the North London area?

    As we’re based in North London and we specialise in providing a local service, we are at this time only listing teachers within boroughs in North London, our Teachers list and service coverage will be expanded upon over time.
